VICTORIA, BC – Lighthouse Brewing Company have just released their first seasonal beer, Lighthouse Winter Ale.
The beer is described by the brewery as follows:
Lighthouse Winter Ale is brewed in the English tradition of the “winter warmer”. We begin with a generous quantity of Maris Otter malt, enriched with the finest UK specialty malts, producing a luscious, silky-sweet character and striking copper/amber hue. German Noble hops provide a delicate balance on the palate, and add spicy complexity to a predominantly malty aroma. Mashed at a slightly higher temperature, and cellar-aged at the brewery, this full bodied, rich, and warming ale is the perfect companion through the chill of the holiday season.
Lighthouse Winter Ale is available in two forms: a 5.6% version on draught in select bars in Victoria and area, and a 6.5% version in a limited run of 2000 bottled six-packs.
